Review
The true story of Karen Silkwood, a worker at the Kerr-McGee nuclear plant in Cimarron, Oklahoma, who becomes aware of cover-ups about the dangers to her and her fellow workers and gets immersed in fighting her bosses for safety rights. The film very effectively mixes her personal life, ex-hubby, boyfriend, lesbian mate, child custody, heart to hearts, and her political struggle. Eventually she discovers she has a highly radioactive fridge and they are out to get her. Meryl Streep is again brilliant.
